Many thanks to my fellow webcomic authors for "lending" me their characters for these cameos!

In panel 2, we can see K.A. Percival from We Are The WyreCats (left), Tarik Göktürk (middle) and Anna Lock from Thousand Steps (right).

In panel 3, we can see from left to right:
- Sarah Matapang from The Second Crimean War, probably on her way to the 12:45 flight to Kiev.
- Ariane Eldar from Theater of the Bloody Tongue, currently angry at (human) Faustus Fitch from Awkward Paws, for nearly knocking her over in his desperate attempt to still catch his flight!
- Pierre-Renard Duval, holding up a sign with Tarik's name.
- Andrew Chapel and Marie-Ange Lebeau from Autumn Bay, on their way to the 12:30 flight to, well... Autumn Bay.
- The "standing right here" guy from Inner Dialogue, who is... just standing right there.
- Pejiba Va from Super Galaxy Knights Deluxe R.
- Camille Landers from Death Child.

In panel 4, we can see from left to right:
- Ffion Gwynne from The Strangest Coven, checking out a wanted poster for Ardrienne Renelsoir from Alvery Nerveaux's Secret Case Files.
- Pierre-Renard and Tarik meeting for the first time!
- Claire Collins from POW! Right in the Nostalgia, traveling with a guitar on her back. (BTW, she is actually even technically related to Tarik, via his sister being married to a distant cousin of her!)
- The Commissioner (Smedley Hopkirk) and Lady Catherine (aka Nula) from Kaza's Mate, Gwenna (NSFW).

Oh man, all those little details--I'm charmed. :p
Microraptor edit delete reply
Details, like for example the pins on Mrs. Matapang's backpack... ;-)

Excellent work! I know these sorts of things can be tricky.

I know that these are mostly just cameos, but think of the shared-universe potential here. (And some of them are more-or-less already connected, due to things like the PRitN family gathering thing and other contexts...)

And I agree, gotta love that ever-growing web of crossovers! :-D

Thanks for the cameo!
Microraptor edit delete reply
It was a pleasure! :-)

Claire would be a second cousin by marriage to Tarik's sister Ceylan
Microraptor edit delete reply
And Ceylan's daughter Cleo is thus even blood-related to Claire!

(And of course, your own Gwenna is part of that sprawling Collins family tree too!)

Wow, nice job! :) I love Anna's hair in this! :)

Thank you, I am glad you like it! :-)

Faustus!! You're gonna get arrested, running through the terminal like a madman!!
Thanks much for this cameo, Fabian, it was wonderful of you to do this for everyone and I'm sure it took ages to draw all those characters! Great job! (And the little antlers pin on Faustus's bag is a great touch...)
Microraptor edit delete reply
Ah, you noticed the antlers! :-D
(I wonder though what will get Faustus first: The airport security, or the wrath of Ariane Eldar...)

And thank you! While it was much work, I also had much fun doing this! :-)

Haha, I love it! I imagine "standing right there" guy doesn't actually have a flight to catch. He just really likes standing there.
Microraptor edit delete reply
Let's just hope airport security won't find that suspicious former or later! :-D

Dang, that's a crowded airport. Nice work with the cameos!
Microraptor edit delete reply
Yep, that airport is very busy! And thus I thought: "Why not fill it with cameos?" :-D
MST3KFan edit delete reply
Thanks for the cameo, Fabian W.! Looks like Claire's doing some world traveling for her band, or trying to drum up some money on the side on her own. XD
Microraptor edit delete reply
Yep, Claire the traveling musician. :-D
(Even though I am not really sure how realistic it would be for the Death Kitties to have gigs outside of the US. It might be possible - I mean, to play internationally, you don't necessarily have to reach "fills entire sport stadiums" level fame first.)
JammyTheBirb edit delete reply
The Cameos, excellent! They fit in so well :D
Microraptor edit delete reply
Thank you! :-)
Hogan edit delete reply
Whew, that was some work I had to do with this... the sheer number of strange people you can meet in the airport! :)
Microraptor edit delete reply
At first I was wondering what you mean, but following the links in your profile, I soon found out!

Many thanks for putting in all the effort, it's definitely appreciated! :-D
Hogan edit delete reply
.. and here I tried being incognito... ;)
Mucho gracias for the praise, and thanks for YOUR effort into our entertainment! :)

Great homages!

Thank you!
First I was worried that nobody will respond to my call to offer me cameo characters.
Then I was worried that I won't manage to get every cameo into the page.
But in the end: Success! :-D
whiteshaix edit delete reply
This turned out great, even I recognized some of them on the spot. Of course, if you ever need cameos again, you can use anyone from my comics.
Microraptor edit delete reply
Thank you!

And I'll keep your characters in mind for when another cameo opportunity comes around. :-)
